[Extract] An individual's senses are essential for growth, development and survival. Sensory stimuli give meaning to events in the environment. Any alteration in people's sensory functions can affect their ability to function within the environment. For example, many people have impaired sensory functions that put them at risk in the health care setting; nurses can help them find ways to function safely in this often confusing environment.
